The "Related Conversations" list would be much more helpful (and used more often) if the listed conversations (or topics) included the date (or, at least, the year) of the original post. Some topics (and answers) are useful over many versions of the app. But many (especially bug reports and workarounds) are pretty specific to an app's version or release date. For example, if you are reporting a possible secondary display bug in LRC 10.2, in 2021, is a similarly titled conversation from 2018 useful or interesting?
Short summary: with each listed "Related Conversation", please display the date and/or app version when the conversation was first started.
Unfortunately, I think those are driven by keywords only.
At least there's an indication for which forum they belong to.
Some of those conversations are well populated, with comments that span a really long time. (Which date would be best? last comment date or original post date?) Some of the threads don't close.
Original post date might be more useful (more indicative of whether the thread is applicable) than date of last comment. Hey, would we be greedy if we asked for both? I mean, it's just software, right?
The purpose of the Related Conversations is to save time, effort, and clutter -- the suggested enhancement(s) would certainly help to achieve that aspiration.
